On Tuesday, 15 October, the Associate Minister for Greater Christchurch Regeneration announced that she had decided to notify the Proposal and invite people to give their views in writing on the Proposal.

The Proposal was developed by Regenerate Christchurch following an approach from the Canterbury Cricket Trust.

The Associate Minister is accepting written feedback on the Proposal until 5pm on Monday 2 December 2019. The Proposal and the written comment form can be found here.

In a separate process, the Christchurch City Council - which leases the Hagley Oval site to the Canterbury Cricket Trust - is consulting the public on a variation of the existing lease to enable the installation of permanent floodlights. The Council’s consultation period will run until Monday 18 November 2019. The Council’s submission form can be found here.

Prior to submitting the Proposal, Regenerate Christchurch sought the views of our strategic partners (Christchurch City Council, Canterbury Regional Council (ECan), Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, Selwyn District Council and Waimakariri District Council) and the Chief Executive of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (DPMC) under Section 66 of the Greater Christchurch Regeneration Act 2016. Their feedback is summarised in the Concise Statement of Views document which can be found here.
